I purchased a B1 earlier this month. Once I set it up it worked fine until this week when my B1 stopped working on 70cm, 2m and RoIP continues to work fine.

  Forgot B1-ham Pin; How to Reset Device?
Posted by: jpsmith8488 - 09-05-2021, 03:23 AM - Forum: General Discussions - No Replies


I bought my daughter a B1-ham for her work with a local search and rescue group. We unboxed the device and allowed it to fully charge, inserted the SIM card and a micro SDHC card, and then started the B1-ham. We chose and entered a pin, and re-entered it for confirmation. We were interrupted by phone call and when we got back to the B1-ham it was off so we pressed the power button and after a few seconds we were asked to enter the pin. We entered the pin that we had written down but the pin would not unlock the device. I would greatly appreciate any advice about how to reset the B1-ham to its original factory settings just the way it was when we unboxed it. Many thanks.

  HELP! B1 Will not transmit or receive.
Posted by: bobnoxious808 - 08-23-2021, 08:25 PM - Forum: General Discussions - Replies (1)

I’ve spent the last three days trying to get the brand new radio to work on any of the repeaters in my area. All of my other radios worked just fine but this new one does not transmit or receive at all. I’ve gone through the set up process several times and even completely factory reset the device. At this point I am extremely upset that I spent this much money.
